Hi folks,

for those of you who want to support POV-Ray development by testing out 
what we're currently working on, there's a fresh Windows build from the 
current development branch ("master") available at:

https://github.com/c-lipka/povray/releases/tag/v3.7.0.20140613

While it doesn't add any fancy features, it's getting some overhaul 
under the hood, so we're eager to hear if we're breaking anything.


For the Unix jockeys among you, the latest and greatest development 
source code can always be found at:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray

I fond a problem with waves pattern in normal statement:

box { <-1, 0, -1>,< 1, 1, 1>
       texture { pigment{ color rgb<1, 1, 1>}
                 normal { waves 0.5  scale 0.015 }
               } // end of texture
     }

This causes a fatal error. Comment: 'Invalid pattern type'
With other patterns, i.e. bumps, no problem.

Thanks for reporting this; it is actually a known issue with 
v3.7.0.20140613, and has already been fixed with commit ac564f7.
